If you like your rooms straight off the pages of luxury lifestyle interiors magazine and want to enjoy winter leisure activities in Italy, then Chalet Baita 1697 might be right up your strada.  This stunning seventeenth-century Piedmontese farmhouse has been reconstructed and redesigned as a fabulous luxury ski chalet in Sestriere that demonstrates the very best in natural decor – rustic woods, rough-hewn stone and tactile fur throws, bringing relaxed comfort everywhere you look. At the heart of this luxury ski chalet is the living area with a spectacular vaulted stone ceiling, roaring fire, statement furniture and super-cosy sofas. There’s also a separate media room (which converts into a bedroom) complete with all you could need for a relaxing afternoon in front of a movie or listening to music.

If you prefer your downtime with a little more fresh air, take a drink out onto the terrace where you can relax in the hot tub with a mountain view.

This luxury ski chalet in Italy is just a three-minute walk to cross country pistes, a heli-ski launch pad, as well as a cable car that will take you to the ‘Milky Way’ Olympic piste and not forgetting the chair lift to fabulous downhill slopes where you can virtually ski right to your chalet’s front door. There is so much on your doorstep that you can enjoy a whole range of winter leisure activities in Italy.
